Police grabbing people at random off the streets, as reported happening yesterday in Minneapolis, is not a new tactic.
It happened at the FTAA protests in Miami in 2003 too, and we blogged it then.
PS. In the process of finding that post from 2003, I realized that images and photos from 2002-2005 weren’t online. They are now.
(Polizeros started on the Radio UserLand platform in 2002, then switched to WordPress in mid-2005. The Radio UserLand images were in a different folder from where WordPress puts them, and I forgot to upload that folder when we changed hosts a few weeks back. However, all 13MB of them are now online.)
